Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

Consider the following reaction: Glucose þ H3PO4! Glucose-6-phosphate þ H2O
The DG8' is þ13.8 kJ/mol; it is an endergonic reaction and will not proceed
spontaneously. However, if ATP is provided as a reactant, the reaction becomes
2.9 The first three cycles of the polymerase chain reaction. The sample is heated
to allow the target DNA to melt into its two separate strands. The reaction
temperature is then dropped and primers bind to either end of target sequence,
The photosynthetic process is accomplished by redox reactions in which water is
oxidized, producing oxygen as a byproduct and the electrons (and protons) are
used to reduce carbon dioxide to form complex organic compounds.
Fundamental to the means by which organisms harness the energy released in
the redox reactions, are two types of compounds which couple into the redox
reactions. The first is a compound called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (
